TECVICO has three main sectors:
1. Research: It is the fundamental sector. To join TECVICO, all researchers initially need to apply for this sector and after working in this sector and being qualified (obtaining Responsiveness Fee and Badges) they can join other sectors. The main goal of this sector is to find new challenges and scientifically tackle them. The main outcome of this sector is journal and conference publications. Besides focusing on research projects and publications, this sector works with interns to train them for their future careers.
2. Competition : This sector is focusing on participating in prestigious world competitions, like Kaggle. Members that gained enough coins in the research sector will be introduced to this sector to form teams and attend competitions. To attend a competition, a member should satisfy the entrance requirements for that competition. The competitions might have different prizes and a member is allowed to choose one that is feasible for him/her based on his/her financial, technical, or academic interests.
3. Industry : This sector is only for pioneer members who already obtained a considerable amount of point in the research and competition sectors. Here, members work on predefined tasks to complete projects for companies and industries around the globe. Projects are highly funded and members need to work hard to timely achieve all defined goals and milestones. After completion of an industrial project, its members will get financial benefits according to their contributions and points that the project's supervisor assigns to each member.
What sector do we start from?
The entrance gate is the research sector. After working in this sector and being qualified by gaining enough Responsiveness Fee and Badges, researchers can join other sectors.
Apply to industry projects
By working in the research sector and acquiring enough Responsiveness Fee and Badges, a researcher will be eligible to join the industrial sector and projects. Obviously, the requirement Res Fee for project members would be different in a way that higher level members need more Res Fees.
Tecvico (Technological Virtual Collaboration) is a Canadian international company founded in Vancouver in 2020. It aims to facilitate the connection between industry and researchers/experts. Tecvico headquarter is located in Canada, and its researchers are collaborating virtually from different countries, such as Portugal, Iran, Canada, Germany, India, and other countries. All levels of researchers (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) can join Tecvico and apply for projects. Current projects are mainly defined in the fields of Artificial Intelligence such as Image Processing, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning. In addition, Tecvico is interested to work in other areas, such as Cryptography, Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud Computing, etc. There are three components to each project: • Response points • Experience points •Financial value To enter the project, individuals must have earned response points and experience points required for the project. Response points can be earned by cooperating in other activities of the company or by making a financial commitment to the company. Experience points are earned based on your resume and interview and the activities you do at the company. The outputs of a project are the response score, the experience score, and the amount of the project budget, which is divided proportionally among the people participating in the project. If the project has another product such as an article, the points obtained from it will be awarded to its participants.
Now, we reached the interesting part of TECVICO, Entry permissions!! Entry permissions are entry permits for projects. They are divided into two main classes:
1. Responsiveness Fee (Res Fee):
This indicates how much a member was responsible for projects that he/she already attended. It contains various aspects, such as attending all weekly meetings, being on-time to deliver a task, being responsible for his/her words and behavior, etc. Depending on the responsibility of researchers in different projects, they are assigned points by projects' supervisors. These points could be converted to Responsiveness Fee. If a researcher cannot afford to pay Responsiveness Fee, he/she can work for TECVICO as an intern or a trial member for a while and after gaining enough points, he/she can join a project.
2. Badges :
This Badges shows how much a member knows a subject and how much he/she is skilled in programming, using software and tools. Depending on how much members were successful to use their skills and knowledge to proceed on a project, they are given points. These points are given by supervisors. Based on these points, researchers are awarded Badges. These Badges cannot be traded, and are only acquired through projects. They play a crucial role in getting into Competition and Industry projects. If a member wants more Ress Fee to join projects with more funds, it is recommended to choose projects that suit his/her abilities and complete them in the best possible way.More effort, More (Ress Fee)!
Apply for a Project
You must be a member of TECVICO to apply for projects. After being a member, you need to satisfy the entering requirements of a project.
Money is sweeter than honey!
Payments and bonuses are proportional to a member's contribution for completion of a project. There's a Chinese proverb that says, "If you try, you'll be rewarded!!
